Laggan Forest Trust
The Laggan Forest Trust (LFT) is a community-led organisation which was founded in 1998 to work in the geographical region of Laggan to:
- conserve, regenerate and promote the restoration of native and other woodlands
- maintain, improve and extend paths within and linking such woodlands for the benefit of the public.
LFT has always worked in partnership with Forestry Commission Scotland, and in 2003 signed a 25 year partnership agreement for management of the Strathmashie Forest. LFT also works closely with the Cairngorm National Park Authority, which has funded the building of our newly opened Laggan Wolftrax Centre.
LFT has a trading arm, the LFT Forestry Company Ltd, which works to provide local employment opportunities, and aspires to achieve economic sustainability for LFT through various social enterprises. These include a small-scale wood fuel business, forestry contracting and the cafe in the new Centre. We are hoping to add bike hire and an uplift service soon.
